Can't handle the New Orleans heat? Make a stateside dream vacation a reality with Heritage Auctions' latest luxury real estate auction in Truckee, California. The custom Lake Tahoe property is secluded and the perfect year-round mountain getaway, with easy access to Reno, Nevada.


The five bedroom home is a reimagined 19th century log dairy barn measuring in at over 3,300 square feet and sits on a tree-filled 60 acre lot near Martis Peak. It comes complete with a separate guest studio (1,100 square feet), a five car pull-through garage, and three separate living areas, each with its own laundry, full bath, and individual power (a.k.a. perfect for large groups and familys). Designed with authenticity in mind, the retreat boasts both vintage finishes and modern necessities. A projection screen, radiant heated floors, a woodburning pizza oven, and several wood-burning fireplaces to cozy next to can be found throughout the home.


Adventure can also be found on the property. Ski, hike, mountain bike, and camp on your own land or in the adjacent national forest. The retreat is located only 20 minutes from downtown Truckee and Northstar skiing, and the historic Juniper Creek flows through the property year-round. When you aren't staring out at the spectacular Sierra Nevada Range or enjoying outdoor life to the fullest, the new owners and their guests are sure to love the indoor saltwater current pool and 1,600 square foot fitness center. There's also a sauna, hot tub, projection screen, and a sunny studio for yoga.


The stunning estate can be yours on Tuesday, June 16 in a live auction, with bidding beginning at $1,500,000. Can't make it to California? Phone and proxy bidders are welcome. (All bidders are required to pre-qualify.)
